Oh what fun we had!!! – Ponderay Neighbor Day 2017

Comments Off on Oh what fun we had!!! – Ponderay Neighbor Day 2017

Fun was had by one and all at the Ponderay Neighbor Day event on Saturday, September 23rd, which was held behind the Hoot Owl Cafe. The ±6 acre parcel owned by the City of Ponderay came to life as a faux main street, designed to demonstrate a possible future underpass location, was lined by more than 50 vendors offering food, crafts, activities, retail items, live demonstrations, produce, as well as homemade jams and grains. Activities throughout the evening included hot air balloon rides, live music by the Miah Kohal Band, demonstrations by Northside Fire Department, kids crafts, carnival games, pony rides, face painting, bouncy castle and cornhole. Meanwhile the SPOT bus circulated Kootenai and Ponderay on a special one day route providing free transportation to and from the event. While we are unable to get a true count it is estimated that more than 500 people joined us for this free family friendly event.

A big THANK YOU to all of the sponsors, participating vendors and volunteer’s who made this event possible!

The feedback we have heard has been overwhelmingly positive, and many people are asking that we make this an annual event.

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and will consider participating again next year!
